Cook's Note:

Gochujang comes in different spice levels and can be very spicy. Adjust gochujang amount to your personal preference and spiciness of chile paste you use. You can also always serve gochujang as a dip for cooked wings for those who have a milder palate.

Please make sure you use freshly grated ginger prepared using a microplane grater. Ginger in a squeeze tube will not have the taste of fresh grated ginger.
